Congratulations to the nine undergraduates who have been awarded UConn IDEA Grants in the fall 2020 funding cycle!
The award recipients represent a variety of disciplines, from psychological sciences to mechanical engineering, and natural resources to digital media & design. They will conduct independent research projects, engage in creative endeavors, and implement educational programming.
Special thanks to the faculty and staff who supported student applications to the UConn IDEA Grant and to those who will be mentoring the award recipients as they complete their projects.
The UConn IDEA Grant program awards funding to support self-designed projects including artistic endeavors, community service initiatives, research projects, prototyping and entrepreneurial ventures, and other creative and innovative projects. Undergraduates in all majors at all UConn campuses can apply. Applications are accepted twice per year from individuals and from small groups who plan to work collaboratively on a project.
